On The Road

Left early yesterday morning, heading south! Thought I'd be clever and share a picture of the moon as seen through the moon roof of the car. :-)

We're in Independence, LA today, visiting my brother and celebrating his birthday, then it's on to Florida in the morning after Mass.

Have a great weekend! I'll soak up some rays for y'all!

Monday Bliss

I just had a share the latest pictures of the master bathroom. They finished tiling the shower last week and it came out better than we ever imagined. We were soooo close to changing our minds on the tile, but finally decided to stick with our original plan. I'm really happy we did!

The bench is made out of a quartzite called Fusion and will match the vanity top which should be installed today. It is positively gorgeous!

Bun hopes everyone had a lovely Easter weekend with family and friends! She feasted on a toilet paper tube stuffed with hay while us two-legged types enjoyed a delicious (double glazed!) Honeybaked ham for dinner.

I'm hoping to have time to work on my Village this week but it's going to be especially busy as we're leaving on Friday for a week long vacation. We're stopping at my brother's in Louisiana to visit for a couple of days and then heading on to the Happiest Place on Earth. That's right! We're going to Disney World! I am sooo excited! It's been over ten years since my last visit so I am more than ready! I promise to wear sunscreen but, after living in Michigan for three years, I fully expect to be burned to a crisp on the first day! I've also warned Phil that I'm likely to start bawling my eyes out the second I step into the Magic Kingdom. So if you hear about some bright red lobster woman laugh-crying her way down Main Street USA next week, that would be me!

April WIPocolypse Report

It's been all about Block 4 this month. Maybe I should be bored doing the ole one-project-at-a-time routine but I genuinely love working on my village. Unfortunately it's to the exclusion of every other WIP I have on my list.

Progress continues on our real life house as well. I've been busy getting things finalized with the granite fabricator and it looks like all our countertops should be installed next week. We have cabinets now, and most of the stair railings are in. Every day the house looks better and better!

It's Opening Day at the Ballpark in Arlington. The Rangers are leading the White Sox by one run in the 8th so I best get back to watching! Let's go Rangers! (And yes, after they lost the World Series last year I swore up and down I was done with the whole lot of them. Obviously that didn't last long!)
